The Bonds of Love : Psychoanalysis, Feminism, and the Problem of
Jessica Benjamin (This book ROCKED my world), The Bluest Eye, Kurt
Vonnegut, Speculative fiction, Mists of Avalon, The Ethical Slut
, the dictionary, The Bible (as literature, a primary
source, cultural studies, religious studies, etc. not as, well,
“The Bible”), bell hooks, Freire, Foucault
, a new one Learning to be
White by Thandeka.
Movies: I like costume dramas and anything beautiful even if the
plot is completely inane (eg: The Cell, Moulin Rouge. Elizabeth.).
I like weird film-fest type stuff. I like sexy stuff – but not
Hollywood sexy as much (Secretary, Y Tu Mama Tambien) ANYTHING with
Angelina Jolie – again regardless of any other factors. I can
handle suspense but generally avoid horror/gore because it
negatively influences my “energy” I loved Black Swan!
Music: I’m a lazy listener so I usually just flip on the radio.
Cities 97, B96, KDWB, JackFM. I have been doing the Current lately
so I feel pretty cultured. I really like really good hip hop if
it’s handed to me on a silver platter, but like I say I’m lazy. I
like singer/songwriter stuff because I like to sing. I like radio
type hip hop because I like to dance. Tori Amos. Ani Defranco.
Fiona Apple. Dave Matthews. Prince. Eminem. PDiddy. Brittany
Spears. Etc. I also like choral music, classical and weirdish
modern instrumental stuff. Not a big fan of metal or country but I
Food: I like food. A lot. I’m not stuck up about it but I like good
food. I've been on an ethical eating adventure. Had a long season
CSA this year and have really enjoyed eating fresh veggies all the
time. It kind of ruins your palate for cheap fake food though. It
all tastes like nothing. I'm a semi-vegetarian. You can think of
that as being flexible or being weak, it's a little of both.
Random stuff I like – most of which is plagiarized from other
profiles, lol: Authenticity, BDSM
, challenge, change,
constructive criticism, fun naughty stuff to wear, creativity
(writing, collage, conversation, planning stuff), critical
literacy, cultural studies
education as a social justice issue, faeries, femmes, flirting,
food, Foucault, gender studies, hair pulling, honesty, justaposition
kissing, learning, nonmonogamy, parenting, Petron, photography
(looking at it, being in it), poetry (writing it), polyamory,
, queer theory, serendipity, sex-positivity, sexuality,
spirituality, teenagers (teaching them, aren’t they cute),
thinking, thunder storms, tops, Unitarian Universalism
